you need to find the area of the whole square that is 16 in... Then find the area of the circle(i supose the radius is 2)... and subtract the circle area from the whole (square)

So 14?

No. $Area _{shaded} = Area _{\square} - Area _{circle}$ Therefore: $Area _{shaded} = (4*4) - (\pi2^2) = 16 - 4\pi$ In terms of pi of course.
